Four Photos, Seven Locomotives

As the title suggests this post, 9th July 2011, comprises four pics, showing seven locomotives; they have been sent in by four contributors and include five different classes.

First up is a pic by Geoff Monks of WCRC class 47, 47760, heading an empty passenger stock move, southbound through Winwick, on 5th August 2011. BR blue liveried, (large logo) preserved class 47, 47580 County of Essex, is on the rear. The train was 'The Lakelander', a railtour which ran Wolverhampton - Carnforth - Ravenglas - Wolverhampton, on the following day. The organising company was Statesman Rail.



The second pic is from John Smith. Treble heading, light engine class 56s and a class 50 were spotted passing Winwick Junction on 6th June 2011. The locos were 56311, 56312 ARTEMIS and 50008 on a Castleton - Washwood Heath working.



Shot number three is from Jeff Nicholls and features EWS (DBS) class 92, 92017 Bart the Engine, in Stobart livery, travelling light engine over Twelve Arches, towards Arpley, on 26th July 2011.





The fourth and final shot is from myself. EWS (DBS) class 66, 66200, is pictured hauling aggregate hoppers through Red Bank on 16th April 2011. Fiddlers Ferry Power Station occupies a dominant position in the background.
